Alexi Kaye Campbell’s other works include The Pride, Sunset at The Villa Thalia at the National Theatre and The Faith Machine at the Royal Court Theatre. Jamie Lloyd returns to Trafalgar Studios after smash hits including The Ruling Class and Macbeth starring James McAvoy and Richard III with Martin Freeman.
Kristin Miller is a firebrand matriarch and eminent art historian. A birthday gathering should be a cause for celebration but the cracks in her family relationships are brought to the surface by the recent publication of her memoir. As the evening progresses questions are asked about the sacrifices she has made and about the price paid by those she loves.
Apologia is a witty, topical and passionate play about generations, secrets, and warring perspectives.
Latecomers may be admitted at a suitable break, but late admission cannot be guaranteed until the interval.
